C's assign Melo to D-League
Having added NBA-tested frontcourt depth by signing D.J. White and Shavlik Randolph to 10-day contracts over the past 24 hours, the Celtics could afford to send Melo back to the D-League for much-needed game reps to help his development.
The Celtics formally announced the signing of Randolph on Friday morning. He will wear No. 42 and be available for Friday's visit from the Golden State Warriors. White officially signed on Thursday and is expected to make his debut Friday as well.
